the president's disastrous health care overhaul rollout. it seems those potential obama care customers who are able to penetrate the website's unintentional front-end security gauntlet may be delivering their most private information on a silver platter to the bad guys. we have fox team coverage. brit hume looks at the shelf life. ed henry is at the white house with distension among the american troops about the promise to keep your health insurance. but we begin with correspondent peter. >> reporter: two men in two states tangled up in a mess created by an error at which caused a breach of private information that nobody in the government has been able to explain to them. a few weeks ago, south carolina attorney tom doogle shopped around at but thought the plans were too expensive. so he went on with his life until friday, when a stranger named justin in north carolina called to say that his brand-new eligibility notice contained personal information about tom and his wife. >> i didn't know if he was trying to phish for my personal information
and disastrous obama care website and no so affordable health care act americans have lost health care. the president had no idea death benefits would be denied and he was completely unaware that the nsa was illegally spying on american citizens and tapping phone calls of leaders from european allies all the way to the pope. this is like tim cook, ceo of apple didn't know apple had an a new ipad until he read it in the paper or boston red sox owner wasn't aware boston won the world series until he glanced at the sports page. or imagine roger, surprised to find out fox news boat all of the other news channel. but he didn't know that until he heard it on the huckabee show?

it says a 2008 obama health campaign adviser puts the rollout this way. they were running the biggest startup in the world and they didn't have anyone who had run a startup or even run a small business or a business. it's very hard to think where the people best at getting legislation passed is best at implementing it. we've seen zeke emanuel saying this is a long game on "morning joe," this is a marathon for the social contract of our country. some see it at this moment of a sprint and even the democrats are failing. with these new numbers out about millions losing their insurance, how do you get better control of the narrative that obama care isn't the titanic? >> well, i think that the rollout has certainly been fouled up, without question. why we'll find out in the fullness of time. but that won't matter in the long run. what will matter is do people in the end get good insurance that's cheaper than what they have? and i think most people will. remember that all these things we're seeing now, all the hype about millions of people facing cancellation of insurance, these policies, m

obama himself to health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius has apologised for the website's problems and vowed to fix it. we are hearing conflicting reports about what went wrong with the roll out. cgi, the contractor developing the site may have warned the obama administration that it would not be ready tro go live on october 1st. we know the administration says it needs until the end of november to fix the technical glitches. that's two months after it launched. to comment the penalty for not enrolling under the new law is effectively waved for six weeks. the new deadline will be march 31st. if you are one of the estimated 15 million americans who buy your own insurance, you are not employed through an employer or insured through an employer, you have to sign up for coverage by the deadline or face a penalty. you can do that through your insurer or go to the government changes, assuming works one day. >> 8.5 million of 15 million could qualify for a subsidy. the affordable part of the affordable care act may be a misnomer for 6.5 millions that didn't quali
years ago a trusted obama health care white house warned the white house it was losing control of aobama care. the warnings were dire and specific, and ultimately ignored. david cutler, who worked on the obama 2008 campaign and was a valued outside health care consultant wrote this blunt memo to top white house economic adviser larry summers in may 2010, "i do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capability to carry it out." he wrote "no one was in charge who had experience in any complex business startups" we worried basic regulations, technology and policy coordination would fail. >> you need to have the people who have understanding of the political process, people who understand how to work within an administration and people who understand how to build, start and build a business and unfortunately, they just didn't get all of those people together. >> reporter: the white house dismissed these and other warnings, it relied an a pointed bureaucrat and seepor health care advisers. fears from constant attacks from republica

at an organizing for action health care summit looking to rally grass roots support for obama care. the white house remains under fire because of president obama's promise that if americans liked their health insurance plan, they could keep it. but according to the associated press, at least 3.5 million americans have already been issued cancellation notices from their health insurance provid s providers. that number is likely to go up as data from half the states still remains unavailable. and there is a report white house officials debated the health care pledge back in 2009 in the likelihood that every american would in fact be able to keep their coverage. yesterday former white house adviser david axelrod defendeded the president on "meet the press". >> why did not you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what you're going to keep your health care plan? was that bad practice? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there. >> the vast majority of americans, that statement will hold true for. for this small group, it hasn't. but the calamitous thing is that the web

is something that goes far beyond health insurance. if you google the term obama didn't know you come up with literally dozens of headlines in the last couple weeks covering the irs on conservative groups, covering nsa, all types of issues. he is trying to take himself out of it. it's a crisis of credibility. >> i want to go to rick ungar. you just heard from natalie. you heard from katherine. >> yeah. >> and there are millions of americans -- why do you justify this? >> but here's -- first of all, why do you justify not digging a little further? let me tell you another horror story. wait, wait, wait. we watched a -- >> did i ask him about another horror story? you see natalie? natalie's 29 and helps put 14-year-old kids to sleep. >> i know. how do you mean? i would like to sit down with natalie and get on the exchange. and you know what else, natalie, you didn't mention -- >> because i want it -- >> hold on a second. you know what natalie didn't mention -- >> wait a minute. she doesn't want it. >> you know what natalie didn't mention? you can buy a policy off the exchange. have you chec
could keep your health insurance really only meant until obama care went in affect. they will keep it going. if people don't get insurance they will pay the individual man date. >> there is a host of issues that follow that. republicans are calling for a delay. how do they gain. >> this is tricky for the republicans, they need the president to be stubborn about this while calling for the kelay. they don't win if there is a delay. it will go to the back burner and it needs to go in to affect for the republicans to have leverage. look at the shutdown polls, people blamed republicans. the president's popularity plummets and ted cruz popularity are going up. republicans are beginning to win. >> you argue that you allow the law to stumble on its own weak foundation? >> yeah, i think they have to. the president designed it and wrote it and didn't want republican input and say it will help the americans. see if they are right. >> you break tyou bought. it thank you eric ericson. >> by the way. it is not just six months. we have a couple of years to get it up and running and working and my
of their health insurance. this is being delivered to us courtesy of obama care and i was the first to fight it. we're hoping people will come to the polls tomorrow to send washington a message about what a failure obama care is. and tomorrow's turned very much into a referendum on obama care in virginia. >> if you were to lose, i know you don't see that as a case, but would it also be a referendum people are okay with obama care? >> i don't know, we're going to have to see how it plays out. certainly, we have come from behind and closed this to within anybody's ball game, in part based upon obama care, while being badly outspent. what people in other states don't see is we're being outspent by tremendous ratios on television, coming from out of state money, whether it's michael bloomberg or unions or planned parenthood, whatever it is, they're putting tons of money to my opponent and we don't have the equivalent and they're lying through their teeth -- >> -- appears tissue division in the republican party, between tea partiys and very -- >> no, no. >> you don't think you were hurt by that? >>
is an assault on this country. most doctors don't like it, it will make our health care worse, and obama made a bunch of promises that turned out not to be true. >> no, no, that was a horrible decision, a dumb strategy. that really is the difference between the two wings of the party that we're going to figure out before the 2014 election. whether you like it or not, the american people have returned divided government to washington. the republicans control the house of representatives, the democrats the senate and the president of course is a democrat. so governs means you have to find the doable. sadly, the names that have been mentioned here tonight think you have to be pure lie caesar's wife or ivory soap, whatever the case may be, and you can't deviate. god forbid you find common ground and work something out. to think you're going to filibuster for 21 hours on the house floor, shut down the government, bring us to the risk of default and all of a sudden in the face of that president obama down at the other end of pennsylvania avenue will go, you're right, obama care stimps, see, that's
consistent with reality. consistn't with reality. and mac, we're told that president obama didn't know the health care website was a mess until after it launched and that he didn't know the u.s. was spying on leaders like the german chancellor. is "i don't know" an acceptable answer for a u.s. president. >> it is not a consistent pog. i think you have two cross currents here. i think cabinet officers and white house officials are expected to taken a assume full responsibility as andy noted and take criticism and heat. perhaps sometimes when it is not fully justified. i think harry truman had it right. the buck stops in the oval office. i think that's the way the majority of the american people look at it. >> other presidents had said, i don't know. top staff, top aides, could say, the president doesn't know details of how a policy is being carried out, david? >> yeah, of course, that's a judgment call. they are the gate keepers not only for people coming in but also for the what the president is told. andy and mack have been there and keeps the president informed. look at the famous pi

that the obama administration is having with this health care rollout. there is a moment in the book where they talk about just before the second debate the president's staff staged kind of what they called an intervention because they were so worried about his debate practice performances. and he told them about his lawyerly mind and that that's why he sometimes had unsatisfying answers. mark halperin actually this morning tied those two things together. let me play that for you. >> almost everything that he's having trouble with now, trouble with congress, trouble with public opinion, trouble with explaining himself, you can see in that scene where he's laying himself bare in a way he normally doesn't do to anybody. >> matt, for a president who has been such an incredible communicator, has communication been his downfall sometimes too? >> i think he's been a bad communicator. i think it's a myth that he has special talent to convince the american people about things, especially when it comes to obama care. >> maybe in that instance. i've seen him do some wonderful things. >> he's also ve
, not the 2016 campaign. >> well, you are chairman of health education, labor and pensions committee and will hold the first senate hearing on obama care tomorrow. the thing we keep hearing over and over again, we heard it on the sunday shows and heard it this morning is why did the president say if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. the associated press is reporting three and a half million people have gotten cancellation notices. what do you make of all this, senator? >> what i mean of all of this is we're missing the big picture. yes, we had problems with the rollout, that's inexcusable, but they're being fixed. but let's keep the big picture in mind. we have millions of children today, up to 17 million children with pre-existing conditions who are covered for the first time ever. we have seniors getting free preventive services, never got it before. last year seniors saved over $6 billion in prescription drugs because we're closing the doughnut hole. and a lot of this, especially with children who are now on their parents' policies, that they never were covered befo
to compare the rough start of obama care to what he called the slow start of the massachusetts health care plan. but he also praised his 2012 opponent mitt romney, who in 2006, as governor of massachusetts, signed that state's health care reform legislation into law. >> i've always believed that when he was governor here in massachusetts, he did the right thing on health care. if it was hard doing it just in one state, it's harder doing it in all 50 states. >> that is proving to be the case. and the 2012 republican presidential nominee, former governor mitt romney joins me exclusively this morning. governor, it's good to see you. thank you for being here. >> thanks, david. good to see you. >> why do you reject the compliment from president obama this week when he says obama care based on romney care and that's the right way to go? >> well, i think the president failed to learn the lessons that came from the experience in massachusetts. first of all, the massachusetts experience was a state-run plan. the right way to deal with health care reform is not to have a one size fits all plan that'
barack obama and democrats sold to the american people. they knew if they sold it to them they would lose their health insurance it would be replaced by a plan they were doubling or crippling it wouldn't have passed. if they told the truth it would have never happened. >> that's key. kirsten. >> the reason why we were sold this is because for a lot of people in the obama administration and democrats believed the end justified the means. so their means are good. they have good intentions. yes, we need a better healthcare system in this country. i am a conservative. i believe that. we need healthcare reform. we need insurance reform coupled with tort reform. people are afraid of change. >> senator, you have lived this life. >> let me tell you, i have lived it, and i afused it as well. this is one of the great abuses. it dem crates the old cliche, power corrupts. absolute power is the worst. i have seen it with republicans. we never quite had absolute power because we couldn't stop the filibuster in the senate. they had absolute power, they didn't give a darn, they weren't willing to listen
is ahead for some americans who already have health insurance on the job. >> jeff: the obama administration is still struggling to fix the new healthcare web site and explain how new insurance programs work. with the vast majority of americans who already receive coverage through their employers are starting to make enrollment choices for next year, and some are seeing big changes. we're joined now by cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger. always good to see you. let's talk about the big companies first. what hangs are we seeing? >>. >> we're seeing higher premiums, not great news. we're also seeing increased costs and out of pocket expenses are going to start creeping in here. so as a result this is going to be a more expensive environment. many companies are starting to introduce something called a high deductible plan. and it's paired with a health savings account. this is kind of the way that people can limit their costs but you really have to be young and healthy to make that work for you. >> jeff: why are they doing these low cost plans, high deductible plans? >> the price of hea

support a diverse america. and even with the problems that obama care is having, most americans believe people ought to be able to get affordable health care. so, you know, in 30 years of covering politics, i have never seen a political party that time and time again embraces the things that most people do not want. it's a surefire losing strategy. >> over and over and over again, it seems they are doing that. in virginia, president obama talked about how voters remember actions of the extreme, joan. listen to this. >> if you embrace the very politics that led to this shutdown, then i guarantee it's not in the rearview mirror of voters in virginia. they remember. they understand that that is not how you govern or move america forward. >> voters are going to remember, particularly virginia with so many government workers, but all over the country voters will remember tomorrow the shutdown that we just got over within the last 30 days. >> well, and ken cuccinelli, maybe he doesn't even want to win, reverend al. because, you know, he knows that the shutdown hurt his chances. he knows it wa
times as much for health insurance that is because she's using her current plan to obama care. i got a copy of your florida blue insurance. and about $54 a month. now i understand that under obama care it's going to go up at least they said that the policy they would offer you under florida blue would be $591. is that correct? >> that's correct. >> but all that spin hides the truth. a new republic reporter tracked diane down and explained how obama care plans could provide much better coverage and for just $50 to $100 more a month. her response, quote, i would jump at it. with my age things can happen. i don't want to have bills that could make me bankrupt. i don't want to lose my house. i would jump at it. as would millions of americans who don't have insurance or who have insurance so bad it doesn't really cover anything anyway. right wingers are hell bent on sabotaging obama care any way they can. but they can't stop americans from learning how the law works for everyone. joining me now is "washington post" jonathan capehart. thanks for being here tonight. >> hi, rev. >> jonathan,
